William Control is the solo project of Wil Francis, the lead singer of the band Aiden. It was originally a side project for Francis, but later became his primary musical output during Aiden's hiatus from 2012 to 2015. William Control's synthesizer driven darkwave style differs significantly from Aiden's post-hardcore style. He was signed to Victory Records before starting his own independent label Control Records and has released four full length albums (Hate Culture, Noir, Silentium Amoris, and The Neuromancer), an EP (Novus Ordo Seclorum), and two live DVDs (Live in London Town and Babylon). Since the release of "The Neuromancer," Francis does all the work in the studio by himself and has referred to his live band as 'The Neuromantic Boys', and the tag line is now used in conjunction with the William Control name to advertise performances. The 'Boys' currently consist of Kenneth Fletcher (who has been involved with the WC project since "Hate Culture"), Ian MacWilliams, and Ben Tourkantonis.
